Shane Black to Write and Direct IRON MAN 3?

It looks like there's a strong possibility that screenwriter/director Shane Black could end up replacing Jon Favreau in the directors chair for Iron Man 3. Favreau already announced that he would not come back to direct the third Iron Man film, so the job needs to be filled. Why not hire the guy who wrote some awesome action comedies in his career? Black's credits include The Monster Squad, all the Lethal Weapon films, and Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. The only film that Shane has directed is Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, which I thought was great. 

I think it would be awesome to see Black take on Iron Man 3, he would not only direct the film but write it as well if officially brought on board. I would love to see what he comes up with. Of course there are absolutley no story details regaurding the film at this time but it will involve Robert Downey Jr. reprising his role as Tony Stark / Iron Man. As of right now nothing is set in stone and the studio is still looking at other filmmakers, but Black has definitely made the list.

Disney and Marvel is scheduled to release Iron Man 3 on May 3rd 2013.

What do you all think about the possibilty of Black taking over the Iron Man franchise?
